Annual Breakfast

Thanks for joining us

If we want America to lead in the 21st century, nothing is more important than giving everyone the best education possible—from the day they start preschool to the day they start their career. —President Barack Obama

The 2015 LEV BreakfastThank you to all who attended and sponsored our fifth annual LEV Breakfast on Thursday, March 26. We enjoyed a conversation about higher education in Washington with Washington State University President Elson S. Floyd and Seattle Colleges Chancellor Jill Wakefield, moderated by Frank Blethen, publisher of The Seattle Times.

We heard inspiring stories from two College Bound students, Kaysiana Hazelwood and Midheta Djuderija, which you can read on our blog.
